“relaxing”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

outstanding pool and beach very clean and well cared for rooms. Affordable food at poolside bar. We rented a car and personally i think that's necessary to get the overall Aruba experience
There is anIitalian restaurant on parking lot property.
Excellent food but extremely slow service so keep in mind if time is important.

My husband & I just returned from a week at Costa Linda. Our first trip to Aruba. Our children have on numerous occasions, used our timeshare to exchange to various resorts in Aruba. We decided it was our turn. We had been going to Cancun for the past few years and wanted a change. We were not disappointed. Check-in was quick and easy( so was checking out). Everyone greeted us with a smile and a "hello." Our room was on the ground floor and our patio was beachside. We sat outside with our cocktails and watched the most beautiful sunsets from our patio. The beach & pool were clean. There was never any problem getting chairs. Our room ( 2 bdrm/2 bath) was spacious and clean. Unfortunately we scorched a small frying pan cooking eggs our first morning. Since there was no "scrub sponge" or SOS, we cleaned it the best we could but gave it to housekeeping that day with our apology. She said not to worry and she'd bring us aother, but, we never got another returned to us. The weather was perfect every day. The breeze was a welcome. Andres who does water aerobics each morning is fantastic! We also met up with him in the fitness center. He's friendly, out going and very helpful. We do wish the fitness center was opened a bit later at night. The spa ( loved Ranita??, sorry about spelling) was great and very relaxing. Being able to walk to Elliots, Pizza Bob's, Matthews and Fusion allowed us to sample several types of cuisine. Waters Edge 12 N, on property was nice for breakfast and drinks, but we thought it was a tad over priced for dinner. The only suggestions we'd make would be 1) to offer more food items ( for the units) in the grocery shop. We were able to buy eggs ( remember we scorched the pan?), butter, jelly, bread but not much else. Since this is a timeshare and units have fully equipped kitchens, it would be nice to be able to have some groceries in our refrig and cabinets. Maybe even an early morning shuttle to a grocery store.2) the 3 computers you have in the walkway are nice to have but too public. Isn't there a way to put them somewhere with more privacy? Costa Linda was fantastic and we plan to go back. Clean rooms, clean beach and great staff; what more can you ask for?

The Costa Linda is a great timeshare resort in the quieter low rise section of the Island. Our 2 bedroom unit was very clean, spacious and comfortable. There was maid service every day except Sunday at no extra charge (a rarity for timeshare properties). The staff was friendly and helpful and the poolside/beach restaurant and bar was decent. The beach here is the best - crystal blue waters, not crowded, no boats, a large swim area and plenty of chickie huts for shade.

The most beautiful beach on Aruba. Fantastic grounds and facility. The only drawback was the area rugs in the bedrooms and living rooms need to be thrown out and replaced. The rooms and everything else was great. The people and staff are fantastic, friendly and very helpful.

Can't say enough about my home away from home since 1992. Beautiful beaches, great rooms and very peaceful. We just love Andres at the pool. It's always a great time with family and friends of all ages.

You know the drill if you have a yearly time share, you come for the low key vibe and great beach. You over look the ugly wicker furniture and beach lounges without cushions... The vibe is 50plus crowd and extremely over weight so there is no need to be decked out by the pool.. Just go and enjoy the natural beauty of the sand and ocean.
